Just found out DS' teacher resigned today
And I am so upset! She has had a serious health problem that needed surgery all year and you could tell she is in pain, but she has a 9 month old, so she had already taken a FMLA leave in the last 12 months. The law says you can only take one leave in a rolling 12 month period - i.e. there must be 12 months between leaves. A specialist told the teacher she must have surgery NOW or risk permanent disability. The school district would not give her an upaid leave and forced her to resign!!!! I am so upset, she is a WONDERFUL teacher and the kids in her class are doing so well and getting great grades.
I am so upset with the inflexible district policies. Our school district is rated "academic emergency" by the state board of education and we need all of the good teachers we can get. I am so angry they forced a really good teacher to resign. I am not upset with her, she is truely having a health emergency.
I don't even know what to do - write to the school board to complain about their policies? I've already called the principal, who said it was beyond her control.
